manager takes christmas break too literally

WE'VE all heard about professional sports stars who pick up injuries in the most bizarre circumstances.

How many soccer players have pulled hamstrings while reaching for the remote control? Or our personal favourite, remember that US baseballer Marty Cordova, who had to cry off a game once because he fell asleep on a sunbed and burnt his face?

Along the Gaelic sidelines at present there's one inter-county manager with a prominent limp. He was vague when we quizzed him about the cause of his ankle injury but one source told us he suffered it when putting up the Christmas decorations!
